  • who gets to teach

We need to deal with

  • New ways of working: practices of scholar, critic, artist, scientist, author, poet
  • New ways of constructing artifacts of that work
  • New habits of mind required and encouraged by that work
  • New ways of understanding or reading the artifacts
  • New ways of interpreting that understanding
  • New languages for that understanding

We can see all these demands discussed and played out in most of our readings. And in the processes of this course.
